Arts Fair Deadline June 30

Have you submitted your application for our Danforth East Arts Fair yet? Now going into its fourth year, it’s our annual arts extravaganza in East Lynn Park. It’s a truly magical weekend. On Sept. 15 & 16, up to 60 artists will set up tents to sell their amazing wares, while local musicians play softly in the background and the smell of fresh food floats on the breeze.

The fair has attracted artists all the way from Montreal and Windsor in the past, but at least half of the artists are traditionally local. The tents have been known feature intricate drawings of our stretch of the Danforth; children’s clothes lovingly sewn in home studios mere blocks from the park; and a photographer who will capture your portrait on a piece of tin and give it to you right there, reviving a historic art form.¬†This year’s fair will also feature children’s crafts and ¬†cash awards for artists.

Getting involved is as simple as filling out an application, available for download right here. Burn a few pictures of your art onto a CD, write a paragraph about why you’re awesome and get it to us by June 30. Questions? Email deca.arts@gmail.com
